The Sunnah recommends that while the adhan (call to prayer) is being called, one should listen attentively and repeat every line silently after the Mu'adhin (the one who calls to prayer), but when he says "Hayya 'ala-Salah" (come to prayer) and "Hayya 'ala-l-falah" (come to success) one should say...
Even if what we are given is little, we should not exhaust ourselves spiritually and emotionally in the pursuit of wealth and in the incessant competition with those who may have more than us. A little wealth that suffices our needs is far better that an abundance of wealth accompanied by avarice and discontent.

Don’t become depressed to the degree that you begin to question Allah. People say: “Why is Allah testing me? Why? He doesn’t like me” Well if that’s the case, He didn’t like anyone on earth because everyone is tested. Even Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), who is the most beloved to Allah...
We often times feel, "I’ve been making du’a and my du’a is not being answered. Allah is not hearing my du’a, or Allah is not answering my du’a. I feel like it’s not working... And sometimes when I feel that way then I want to give up."...
You should hope and expect that Inshallah Allah will indeed forgive me and the sign for this is that you live a better life after repentance than you did before your repentance. This is the sign. If you have been a sinner for a number of years, and then you repent, the future after that repentance should be a better future...
